Windows Live Movie maker is designed to be easy and efficient to use and also after your movie complete you can share it on MSN Video.

    Very nice review for this simple way to make a movie. I prefer to use Adobe Premiere myself as it has so many more options that I need for my use when I make my movies. This is a good tool for beginners though.
